What We Think

Although the pedals may look plain and basic, the performance is certainly not. Axis Longboards come equipped with all the basic adjustability options as most bass drum pedals. You can adjust the spring tension, and the height of the beater. Because this is a direct drive pedal, there is no chain or strap to adjust. Less lag and friction to achieve maximum efficiency of the pedal motion. Another thing that sets these pedals apart from the rest is the ability to adjust the distance of the beaters horizontally. With most pedals you can adjust the height of the beater without a problem, but with the Axis, you are also able to adjust everything on the beater as well. From angle of the head, to the distance it sticks out, you can adjust it. The big advantage here is that there is less space between the beater and the bass drum head. For jazz players in smaller rooms, this allows for an easy and quiet stroke without too much effort, and for the metal guys, less space to the drum head is less energy spent trying to kick out notes. It isn’t a normal pedal and it does take some getting used to, but once you have, the chances are that you will be playing stuff that your haven’t before.

 

 

Manufacturer's Description from Axis Percussion

The patented variable drive lever allows the player to obtain the feel of any type of pedal with one simple adjustment. The new “Beater Forward” design substantially increases the power of the AXIS A without making it feel heavier, resulting in an increase of both speed and punch from both heel-up and heel-down players. The Variable Drive Lever changes the ratio of the footboard movement to the arc of the beater.

About Manufacturer

For almost three decades, Axis Percussion have been manufacturing high-quality drum hardware made from aircraft-grade aluminum and steel. Their goal is to provide drummers with efficient and durable gear that will last them for years. Axis started as Engineered Percussion, the brainchild of drummer and machinist Darrell Johnston. After a few failed experiments, Darrell produced the first versions of the now-iconic Axis pedals around 1990. After rave reviews in Modern Drummer Magazine and at the 1991 NAMM show, Axis began to garner a reputation for their innovative and durable designs. Today, with an artist roster including names like Derek Roddy, George Kollias, and Alfred Berengena, Axis pedals are revered by drummers the world over who seek speed, precision, and dependability from their gear. All parts are machined at Axis’ facility in Carson, California, meaning that Axis products truly are American-made by a small team of dedicated machinists and engineers.
